There are many fears, on all sides, that have come to the surface. For this, Donald Trump has done us a favor that we can receive with gratitude (but “thanks” is not a vote). Hearts and minds can remain entrenched in narrow hateful thinking if left alone. But when things get stirred up, when the fears come to the surface, we have an opportunity to expand vision, to address bigotry, greed, insecurity, and apathy, to push ourselves toward more Loving community.
We must Love Donald Trump and his supporters. We must Love the people who oppose Donald Trump and his supporters. It’s the American thing to do. It’s the way to move forward.
